Paying Respect to the Three Jewels

Buddhists pay highest respect to the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha as an expression of devotion, strong confidence and deep inspiration in the Buddha’s Enlightenment, His liberating Teachings, and His noble disciples.

Homage to the Buddha

The Buddha has shown that within us lies the highest potential for enlightenment. We revere and honour the Buddha’s great virtues and aspire to follow His footsteps to cultivate wisdom and compassion.

Taking Refuge in Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha

In facing life challenges and in pursuing a peaceful and fulfilled life, Buddhists turn to Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha for guidance.  Amidst a stream of change, to take refuge is to rest in the security that our Dhamma practice can provide us.

Observing the Five Precepts

We understand that we are capable of co-existing harmoniously with others.  We make effort to live a life of mindfulness and restraint, free our thoughts, speech and actions from causing hurt and harm to ourselves and others.

Mettā Reflection

Mettā is the altruistic and unconditional attitude of love that promotes goodwill, friendliness and benevolence towards all beings.  It results in understanding and concord with other people, as well as gaining peace within ourselves.
